'War is a Force that Gives us Meaning' with Chris Hedges

War Correspondent Chris Hedges is taking on a very tough job, telling the truth to people who absolutely do not want to hear it.  His first hand accounts of war makes this is his most compelling speach!
"In war, Truth is the first casualty." -"Violence is a disease, a disease that corrupts all who use it regardless of the cause.”
"We are tempted, maybe even encouraged, to reduce life to a simple search for happiness. Happiness, however, withers if there is no meaning. The other temptation is to disavow the search for happiness in order to be faithful to that which provides meaning. But to live only for meaning, indifferent to all happiness, makes us fanatic, self-righteous, and cold. It leaves us cut off from our own humanity and the humanity of others." - and his most famous quote, used in The Hurt Locker: "The rush of battle is often a potent and lethal addiction, for war is a drug.”
